I Miss Texas

    Why Did We Move?

    I lived in Texas most my life. I grew up there. Someday I will go back, but now I live in Wisconsin. Someday, I'll refer to it as home, but Texas will always be the best home in the world. Whenever I hear a song, or see a picture, that reminds me of Texas, I start bawling.

    How I Miss Texas

    I was born in Louisiana near the border with Texas, but before I was a year old, we moved to Texas. First it was near Plano, but I've lived all over the Dallas area. I moved to Knoxville because I got a great deal on tuition at UT (the other one). But I am still an Aggie at heart...

    I miss Texas, and regret moving away from the

    state. Having lived my whole life there, I starting bad-mouthing the state, and thought "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence". Three years later, after moving to Colorado, I now see things completely different. I miss the real people of TX; people who I never...

    Native Houstonian

    When we were living in Central Florida, I really missed my hometown of Houston, badly.  Having left when I was six months pregnant was, at first, an exciting venture.  But, after our son was born, I realized how very lonely I was, for my friends and even my crazy family...

    Want to Move

    I'm from Iowa. I guess I like it, but it's cold. So far in my life, the Army has brought me to Texas 3 times. It's been great- San Antonio and Fort Hood. Weekend passes and shooting guns. Where a man can be manly and not have to kiss everybody's butt like you do here in...

    It's Warm There

    "Honor the Texas flag; I pledge allegiance to thee, Texas, one state under God, one and indivisible." As far as I know, Texas is the only state with its own Pledge of Allegiance. Hank Hill is my hero.
